Running for a rodeo queen title is the same as running for a beauty pageant...except instead of the talent competition, we have a horsemanship competition. We are given a pattern to complete, then asked multiple questions that can be anything about horses, the rodeo, or the tack. We also have to compete in the modeling, interview, personality, and appearance.
Pretty interesting right?? I'm thinking about running for Miss Rodeo Arizona... I don't know though. There are so many things I want to do in life! Sometimes I feel like I don't know how I'll fit everything in! Regardless, rodeo and the ranching lifestyle will always be apart of my life. It is such a fun part of my life that I'll never let go.
If any readers want to become a rodeo queen there are a few things that are a necessity. I know some of the "rules" below are silly, but in all seriousness, to be a rodeo queen you must be a good role model. Be kind to others, have others best interests at heart, set a good example, respect your authority and the livestock, be humble, have a servants heart, and try your best to always learn and improve. Those really are the key aspects of what I think every rodeo queen should be. Do that and you will be the most beautiful queen there ever was!
